Scott Evans


My name is Scott Evans and I am the author of Memoirs of a bar steward, a story that is loosely based on and inspired by my own life at the very start of the 21st Century. In the year 2000 I was 18 years old and moved, with my family and some friends, from the city of Birmingham to Torquay in the southwest of Devon. My family had just bought the lease of a public house that over looked the sea and I was its licensee, the youngest licensee in the country at that time. I should had gone to university, I had passed all of my A levels, but presented with the opportunity to run a lively pub in a busy seaside town I opted to do that instead. Was it the right choice? Probably not. Do I regret it? Not at all. I had a great couple of years and it was where I met my future wife and now I have two beautiful children and a very good life. It was when I was working in the pub that I first started writing. After watching the first Lord of the Rings movie at the cinema I read the book, which was the book that made me fall in love with reading. So during the grave yard shifts during the day when not many customers came in, I began thinking up stories of my own. My first story was a fantasy, one about the after life and a epic journey, but more importantly the start of it was about a young man who had moved to a seaside town, and it was this segment that I later went on and developed into a full comedy story all of its own. For Memoirs of a bar steward I drew on my own experiences and knowledge of a young person running a pub. The characters in my book are inspired by people I have met and my friends and family, however whereas my character Jacob Cox is troubled by virtually everyone he knows and is related to, I am happy to say I have a wonderful, if a little eccentric group of family and friends. If you read my book you might like to know that a lot of the incidences in it are largely based on real events, while others are only based a little on events I have experienced but I will leave you to wonder which could be based on truth or are completely fictional. I am always happy to answer questions and if you would like to get in touch you can do at Thank you. I hope you enjoy my work.
